The book on Rennie Curren is 142 pages long.

He should know, he wrote it.

The Edmonton Eskimos linebacking hopeful is also a published author, his journey from highly-decorated Georgia Bulldog to out-of-work NFLer on the shelves for about six weeks now.

“The response from people has been great, even some guys on the team have read it,” said the 24-year-old former Tennessee Titan and Tampa Bay Buccaneer. “I got an e-mail from a soldier in Afghanistan who told me he read it during his 12-hour guard shift. It’s an amazing feeling to us my, I guess you could call it a failure, to inspire people.”
